As many of you audiophiles know, the acoustic pigometer is one of the most precise and sensitive pieces of sound-measurement equipment on the market, and as such requires extensive calibration before use. Let’s listen to how it’s done:
Sometimes that cow, she looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a cow… she’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When she comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until she licks ya with that soft pink tongue and then… ah, then you hear that terrible high-pitched squee-in’…

You know, working hard all day sure builds up a powerful, man-size hunger. So when I get home, I like to cook up a hot, steaming plate… of Cat™.
That’s because Cat™ is the kind of hearty, stick-to-your-ribs meal that tastes so right after a tough day. So treat yourself to the all-natural goodness… of Cat™.

“Listen, loves — the photographer wants you arranged from darkest to lightest, so Redonkulousness, I need you to stand next to Nomming… yes, that’s it… and Snorgles and Proshness, if I could get you to switch places, that would be super, thanks. Now, big smiles, everyone…”
Friends, we stand at the threshold of evolutionary history, because the San Francisco Zoo has discovered the first-ever gorilla/giraffe hybrid! The Zoo has released this amazing photo of the baby “gorillaffe” (homo reticulus redonkuli), which should silence even the most doubtful skeptics, and you can see more on the Zoo’s Picasa pages.
Whew, we’re beat! What a whirlwind National Pet Week this was! You peeps bombarded us with jokes, rhymes and trivia–over 950 entries in all four contests!

Ice cream? No, I most certainly do not want any of that ice cream. It has an appallingly uneven texture, and the so-called “black raspberry chips” are mere flecks of color, in stark contrast to the deceptively luscious portions on the label.

One of the standout sequences in the otherwise unnecessary sequels to The Matrix comes when Neo fights off an endless swarm of Agent Smiths. Well, make some popcorn, because you’re about to see that scene the way it was meant to be made–with puppies!
